Intensive food production in the middle of the city creates potentials for the economy, for trade and the public life. Healthy organic produce will be sold on newly created market areas – next or in the vertical farm. Regional products are available all over the year. The vertical farm therefor can be seen as a magnet to relocate market- and trade spaces which directly or indirectly are connected to food production and food distribution within the city. The vertical farm, in the visual field of the urban population,
embodies a closed production chain from cultivation to distribution.
Food production will become part of metropolitan daily life.
Vertical farms already have been realized in numerous countries all around the globe. Technologies therefore are already in use, economic track records are speaking for themselves
